EDISOyS GREAT DISCOVERY. l Ceraiay aal Zanzibar Storm la ark'-Ll Hunt Chiaj Departs His Gifts 7 Queen Victoria Murderous Dynamiters The War- la Cuta Clarkson Conmacder of G. A. R LONDON, September 17. The Tunes prints a special article this morning on the recent meeting of the Emperor of Germany and the Czar, of which the following is a part: The interviews between the Emperor and the Czar consisted of two long talks. Emperor William was effusively amiable and talkative and even rhetorical, while the Czar was reticent, brief and cau tious. Emperor William declared the Russo F.ench entente ca'iSfti him sat-faction rather than anxiety " nause I he regarded it as a guarantee r. eace. His SDeach then nrocpedpd as ll0WS "The French na'ion riocS u .wish war, but nen those "at the heAl of af fairs desire it the nation is very liable to let itself be carried away. At present, however, France would not enter upon a great war without your co-operation, and I have complete confidence in your traditional wisdom and firm ness, r know you will not make war in order to give France the satisfaction of revanche, just as I and my allies will do nothing to furnish a pretext. "I may say even more, I am glad of your intimacy with France, because that intimacy will suffice to hold in check the revolutionary spirit by which it is agitated and will help to fight and crush it. In Russia you have nihilism the spirit of conspiracy, the spirit of darkness. In Germany we have scien tific socialism the spirit of destruction, disguised under the mask of hypocritical scientific formulas a spirit which: is very dangerous in a people which delights in obscure philosophical conceptions, and which imagines it un derstands whatsis, obscure. In France what dominates is the thirst for over throwing the existing order of things the desire of novelty which takes pos session of overrich and comfortable people when they feel time lie heavily on their hands. "We ought to act as the guardians of the order and the protectors of the peace of the world. It is a most urgent question. It is the salvation of all. and, if we march forward together, if we unite in order today to combat the enemy of God and of kings, we shall be rewarded by the gratitude of the world and of history." With regard to the Czar's reply there are but two reports current According to one. Czar Nicholas shook Emperor William warmly by the hand, and said: T am absolutely in agreement with yon and am ready to join in a work which is worthy of our united efforts." According to the other report, the Czar seemed not altogether at ease when the Emperor was speaking of France, and, on hearing the peroration, he expressed merely in. vague terms his pacific intentions. The latter version seems the more probable and more in harmony with the character of Nicholas. However, there is no doubt that Emperor William subsequently declared himself satisfied with the reply. LI SATS 'TRA LA.'" Once More Bound Home After Paying Respects to Canadians. VANCOUVER, B. C, Sept. 14. Li Hung Chang is an early riser, but despite the fact that he rose at 5 o'clock this morning, he was kept busy up to the hoar of departure of the steamer Empress of China, receiving deputations. Several Chinese deputations were received early, and at S:30 the Board of Trade was received. Li questioned them at length concerning the Industries of the province, exports of lumber, minerals, fish, etc. He also railway construction with them, stating that a considerable amount of material would be obtained from Can-a& for railways- about to be built in China. The City Council was received next. An address of welcome was presented and a suitable reply made. The roy thanked the Mayor for the protec tion afforded Chinese, remarking that he was told that Canada, wanted the rreopte. Consuls then Interviewed his excellency, and on behalf of their re spective governments welcorcd the Viceroy. II requested them to rhgnfr their goTernments for the courtesy shown to hira and for numerous invita tions to visit their countries, many of which, unfortunately, he was unable to accept. The Viceroy spoke at considerable fengtfi to Japanese Consul Nosse, and requested him to write a letter to Japan's Fortfgn .Minister, expressing- re gret at his fnabtliry to visit the Japan ese, ana also to state the Viceroy's row at tho forced retirement of Count Ito owing to ill-health. The Empress of China left about 3 o'clock in the afternoon. Besides conferring decorations on Dr. Horsey, the Canadian Government representative, and Mr. Lalande, the Can adian Pacific railway agent, who accompanied the party, twelve Chinese received decorations, including some from San Francisco and Portland. The scene at the steamer just before departure was an animated one. The vharf was crowded with people, who loudly cheered, though the noise of hf ecrackers nearly drowned everything else. Captain Hard-Dyke, of her majesty's ship Conius, escorted the to Victoria on the Empress of China, as did several leading Canadian Pacific railway officials. X HETTEU THAN A VHOItE. EdKou" YlouiNWopo Instantly Reveal tlie ltestlus Place of a ISullor. NEW YORK, September 11. Thom as A. Edison and his assistant wizards of Menlo Park were in a very pleasant frame of mind to-day because of the success of an experiment with the fleuroscope performed Thursday night: They were pleased because Edison's new discover did all that was claimed for it, and did instantly and complete ly what a surgeon's probe had repeatedly failed to do. Last Saturday afternoon Frank Den ny, the sixteen-year-old son of a prom inent politician of Orange, N. J., was playing with some boys near his home. An Italian was passing and he claims the boys called him vile names. He drw a revolver and fired one shot, which took effect in young Denney's left thigh. The boy was at once conveyed to a hospital and a physician made three unsuccessful attempts to extract the bullet with his probe. The theory of the surgeon was that the bullet had lodged alongside the tibia. Repeated attempts with the probe were made and young Denney grew weak under the strain. It was therefore decided to apply to Mr. Edison for aid. Mr. Edison was only too pleased to put his fleuroscope to a practical test. and last evening Denny was conveyed to Edison's laboratory. A physician accompanied him. The, injured limb was incased in splints a quarter of an inch thick and numerous bandages. A Roentgen ray tube was placed against the inside of the wounded limb, while on the oddo site side was placed the fleuroscope. When all was ready an assistant turned on the rays while' another looked through the cone of the oscope. In an instant splints, bandae.es and flesh had faded from vision, reveal la only light shadows of the boy's leg ana aarc snadows of the bones. In another instant Mr. Dailey's keen eyes aiscerneu a small, dark object wedged against the femir. It was the bullet. X MURDEROUS DYNAMITERS. Their Terrible Plans Laid Bare and leader-. Arrested. LONDON, Sept. 14. "The greatest dynamite plot ever known has been defeated by the arrest of four of the principal conspirators." This is the startling but vague statement made by a high authority of Scotland Yard. It is the only official explanation yet forthcoming of the simultaneous arrest of Tynan, Kearney, alias Wallace. Maine and Bell yesterday. Until four days ago that was all the English detectives themselves knew of the conspiracy, although they have been using every resource in their power to penetrate the mystery. The Foreign Office is open late tonight, exchanging telegrams with the Embassies at Paris, Sl Petersburg The Hague and Brussels with reference to the case. It Is needless to add that the revelations of the conspiracy have made such a sensation in England as has not been known in years. A dispatch from Glasgow says that the police of that city have found am ple evidence among the effects of the prisoner Bell of an alliance between the Irish dynamiters and the Russian nihilists. The preparations making for the pro tection of the Czar in Scotland and in France on his coming are most elaborate. In view, however, of yesterday's arrests they are probably quite superfluous. Inspector Melville went to Boulogne tonight to take personal charge of the extradition proceedings against Tynan. His surrender will be requested solely on account of the Phoenix Park case. France refused to recognize a similar request at the time of that crime, but the extradition treaty has since been modified to cover such cases. The question now is whether the new treaty Is retroactive. X CLARKSON" IS COMMAKDER. Grand Army Clo-e Their Annual Encampment. ST. PAUL, Sept. 4.
